Etched Wedding Champagne Glasses

etched champagne glasses
It is wedding season for the next couple of months so I have lots of gifts to make. First out of the gate is a set of etched champagne flutes. I love how these turned out! I took a pair of cheap Dollar Tree glasses and turned them into a lovely gift using etchall® etching creme and the new Petal Papers from DCWV.

etching stencil

I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut etchmask® for the stencils I used. I always rub a little chalk over the cut stencil so I can see where the lines are. This makes it so much easier for me to see where to place the stencil on my project.

I applied the stencil to the glasses using etchmask Transfer Sheets. Once you have the stencil in place it is time to weed out the part of the design you want to etch.

etching creme

Apply etching creme and allow to sit for 15 minutes. For a project like this that isn't flat I use masking tape to create a "wall" around the stencil. This really helps keep the etching creme in place- and off the areas you don't want etched. After 15 minutes you can return the creme to the jar- it's reusable! Rinse well with running water and dry.

Crepe paper flowers
Have you tried the new Petal Papers from DCWV? They are available at JoAnn stores here in the states. I love to make flowers using crepe paper! I am excited that I can now get that crepe paper locally instead of mail order.

DIY paper flowers

Cut a 1 1/2" strip of the white Petal Paper. Make sure you pat attention to the grain of the paper- the "creases" should always be running top to bottom, not side to side.  Roll the strip up tightly and use a VersaMagic ink pad to color one edge.

Pearl trim
Use a 1" Glue Dot (or a 1" paper circle that you have run through a Xyron machine) to make the flower. Start on the outer edge of the Glue Dot and press the end of the Petal Paper into the dot. Gather the paper slightly as you continue to press it into the glue dot. I make two rows - just keep going from the outer layer to the center of the glue dot to make the inner layer. Use a small skewer to roll the edges of the Petal Paper randomly. You can also slightly stretch the edge to make it more ruffled.  I used some pearl trim from Expo International for the center of the flowers.

Add the flowers to the base of the champagne glasses and they are ready to gift!
